Many thanks to NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) for selecting me as a recipient of a 2009 NYFA Fellowship award. It is a prestigious art award that comes with a $7000 grant. This year 134 fellows were chosen from over 3,600 applicants. The grant is "unrestricted" (it doesn't have to be used to a specific project) - which makes it particularly welcome just now.
